As someone who has personally collaborated with him, about 3-4 years ago now, I can vouch for him producing original material. Also had chats with Jason through Soundcloud around late 2012 or so, and he expressed genuine interest about production and the likes, which was around the time he was starting out. For the record, this isn't to defend what he did, but just to make it known that not all
of the material was stolen.
On an unrelated note, he was pretty rude about an album review I wrote (first one ever, and last one too) for his EP back around 2014, because it was "too similar of a review for a BoC album" which I wasn't previously aware of...
You know, Hitler did do some charity work. Let's not focus on the whole Holocaust thing.
I get where you're coming from. Like I said, it's not to defend what he did. To me, it's important to recognize because it makes me question what his motive was behind all of this. He had a genuine interest in production, actually produced his own material, but on top of that, also stole a handful of other people's material, then lied and said it was his??? It'd make more sense if it was all stolen, otherwise why would he soil the validity of his own work, and also the dignity of his own name like that? Was it all an honest mistake, or was it out of some sociopathic tendency to scam everyone?
Was this his plan all along, or did something happen down the line that caused this shift? I personally suspect that Eyesix Records was a ploy for money from the get go, because not a single artist was paid. This makes me believe the whole "he didn't know what he was doing" story is bullshit, because he was certainly no stranger to taking what wasn't rightfully his.
Not to mention the handful of "macbook fundraisers" that he put together on facebook, including the compilation he released to raise money for a new laptop. How many times can you spill something on your expensive computer before you realize having your cup of liquid too close to the laptop is a bad idea?
